Replaceable blade straight razors (also known as shavettes) give you the closeness of a straight and the convenience of a disposalable.

Many people loved the testosterone-inducing buzz of a "cut-throat" straight razor, but they don't love the honing and stropping needed to keep it in that way. The shavette razor allows you the best of both worlds. You can get the closeness and feedback that you get with a long, sharp blade, but you don't have the maintenance when you can simply switch out the blades with a new, fresh edge. Also, great for barbers who need a new, sanitary blade with each client.

Heavier than the Dovo Shavette is a plus
2/22/2017
The Parker has a stainless blade holder vs. the Dovo plastic. It's heavier, which makes it easier for me to control. The plastic "handle" is a little off angle, so I have to be careful closing it, but iOK for the price. Don't get the Parker with the metal "handle", it doesn't balance as well.

Good introduction to straight edge shaving

Parker SR1 Barber Straight Razor "This should be one of the alternatives if you are thinking about switching to a straight razor but are uncertain of your ability to shave with a straight razor, to strop a straight razor, and to hone a straight razor. It takes regular DE blades that you snap in half while they are still in the paper. Your shave will depend on techniques and the quality of the DE blade, not your sharpening skills.



Light weight. Average to low finish quality. But very functional. If this is your first foray into the world of a straight edge, make sure you also buy an alum block, a styptic pencil and good after shave balm. You WILL cut yourself. You WILL have serious razor burn. And your shave will NOT be very close until you learn the technique. Good fun for less than $20. Not a Feather, but solid value for the price point.

An excellent straight

Feather Artist Club DX Japanese Razor "The short version: This is a very easy to use, aggressive straight razor that is expertly designed and crafted. This is an excellent razor and I would recommend it to anyone from someone new to straight razors (myself) to experts. Before we start, my level of straight razor shaving is close to none. I attempted it with some genuine straights (not shavettes) and all they did was pull on my beard. I also found them to be ungainly and clumsy to use. They were too big where I didn't want them to be big and the handles were too long. It was difficult to get my technique and an overall painful experience. I wanted to restart though. My neck is extremely sensitive and I keep hearing about how straights are excellent for that issue. The Japanese straights solved the length issue. They were not lying either. Straight razors are excellent for shaving necks. It was between the SS and the DX and I went with the DX. I will probably pick up the SS too. Other reviews I read say they are both great and the blades are interchangeable. First off, I think I need to mention the grip. I wouldn't typically include this in a review, but it is so different from holding a straight that if you don't understand how to hold it, you won't have a good time. You hold this razor like you would hold a knife. You pinch it where the blade tapers to the handle, just above the razor blade. This allow maximum control over the blade, making it very easy to maneuver. The blade is a nearly perfect length. It isn't so long as to make finding flat surfaces on my face difficult but it is longer (and sharper) than a DE blade by about half. It is also wide enough to make shaving my upper lip relatively easy, though I still have problems with it. The DX is pure joy to use. It is terrifying at first but one I found the proper angles to use on my side burns, it glides. It contours to my neck once I figured out how to hold it and stretch my skin the correct way. Also, because it is so sharp and the blade is so exposed, I find that I self limit pressure. By the second shave, I had no razor burn, even on my neck. I also love not having to worry about honing. I understand this isn't a genuine straight razor, but it is really easy to use and it is really pleasant. The blades are extremely sharp and glide easily over my skin. My wife is happy that I get to remove shaving stuff from our house. It is a win-win. I should also mention that the DX is very aggressive. I used the blades that attempt to prevent nicks and nearly the entire honed surface is exposed. This might be to mimic a genuine straight razor experience. This is also pure stainless, so it doesn't rust. In my apartment, anything that can rust in the bathroom, does. It is also trivially simple to take apart and clean but the blade stays held in place. Basically, with this razor, you get what you pay for and then some.
